Greetings From The  Dean
 
Dr. Joyce Y. Johnson, Dean, College of Sciences and Health Professions
Welcome to Albany State University, College of Sciences and Health Professions, Department of Nursing. What a phenomenal experience you have in store for you as a nursing student and after graduation as a baccalaureate-prepared registered nurse (RN)! The world of health care delivery is dynamic, demanding, and daunting. The profession of nursing, however, plays a pivotal role in helping patients meet their health care needs in a caring and holistic way.
You are beginning your journey in professional nursing. For those of you in school for the first time, this is the initial stop on a trip with many possible destinations. Those of you continuing your nursing education know that this is one of many new stops on your ongoing journey. You may end your journey in a staff nurse position in an emergency room, a CEO position in your own nurse-run clinic, or a Dean position in a College of Nursing. You don't have to know your ultimate final destination, but we are delighted you have planned to stop at Albany State University. As a nursing student you will be challenged to devote your time and energies to reading, studying hard and preparing well so that you can provide the best care possible for your patients and become the best nurse you can be.
